  2. Battery for 2004 Lotus Esprit TT

    Lotus Esprit
    @jtrealty gives some good advice, but this bit . . . . . . is lore we all learned from our dads. It used to be true, but not anymore. Regarding float chargers, you could leave a 250 - 500 mA dumb trickle charger (or better yet, a trickle charger with a brain box) on an unused battery for 6...
  3. Clicking in front wheel when cornering hard

    Lotus Elise
    @Maui05Elise - I helped a friend once with a similar problem on a right front wheel. The problem was that the single screw that held the one-piece brake rotor/top hat in place during wheel/tire changes had backed out enough to hold the wheel up off the top hat. Initially, the wheel was held...

    Lotus Elise
    I obtained this PDF of the Elise & Exige Owner's Handbook Supplement 2011 MY Onwards USA from Lotus USA and then processed it including: - cropped pages to the printable area - added bookmarks visible in the bookmark pane - added padding (pages) so that the document displays correctly in a...

  7. R&R Elise front parking bulb

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    @tomrev - I don’t have the same bulb holders on my 2011 as you, but can offer some help. “Counter clockwise” will be as you are looking at the bulb holder from the back. If the holder doesn’t release after rotating, try gently rocking it back and forth . . . it is likely an old rubber gasket or...
  8. AAA: Clean Up Your Headlights

    Lighting
    Of course most drivers couldn’t care less about the effect of their lights on others, but plastic lenses in poor condition combined with HID or LED light sources also result in large amounts of glare that create dangerous conditions for oncoming drivers. Fixing your headlight lenses not only...

    I can currently think of three useful PDF files that I'd like to post . . . 9.04 MB total. Glen
  10. Attachment and Gallery Limitations

    Community Help
    I think what you’re describing already exists. I’m not aware of any browser that renders a pdf link as an inline document. Every browser I’ve dealt with allows you to set a preference regarding what happens when you click a pdf link: download or view. This behavior can also be forced to download...
  11. Attachment and Gallery Limitations

    Community Help
    Hmmm . . . my Gallery has a limit of 60 pictures and there's no upload button since I'm already at the limit. But I was able to create a new album: that solves the limit problem. Maybe that was always possible? Any help for a place to store large PDF files so we can preserve them here on...
  12. Attachment and Gallery Limitations

    Community Help
    Inline pdf attachments are allowed, but they have a 500kB limit . . . that's pretty small. The PDF user manual for an Elise - even optimized and reduced in size - is over 9,000 kB. To share that document here in a permanent manner, we need to be able to store it here and link to it (I doubt...
  13. Attachment and Gallery Limitations

    Community Help
    I recently posted some information on LotusTalk and had to insert an external link to a PDF. That prompts this post describing two problems. I’m maxed out at 60 images in the Gallery and cannot add any more. These are images I’ve used to illustrate posts here on LotusTalk. By storing them on...
  14. Bought an Evora from out of state dealer

    General Discussion (Lotus related)
    Yeah . . . they don’t owe you anything . . . not even the courtesy of routine business communications. You own the car; what more do you want? /s Glen p.s. - for those who can’t tell, that was sarcasm
  15. FS: "Lift" here Center of Gravity decals

    Parts For Sale
    Before I installed a two-post lift, I would oftentimes put a piece of painter's tape on the rocker panel while using a jack for repeated operations. My concern about the CG nomenclature is that someone could misconstrue the word "lift" and have their ignorance reinforced by concluding that ". ...
  16. 2011 Lotus Elise SC CG Calculations

    Lotus Elise
    In another thread, @InfernoLotus shows a graphic he created to mark the location of jacking point A on the rocker panel. The graphic also labels the jacking location as the center of gravity (CG). I commented that jacking point A and the CG aren't coincident. I wanted to quantify that...
  17. Ads with auto scripts - potential risk?

    Community Help
    I’m using the iCab Mobile browser on an iPad. It gives me the option to block pop ups and redirects. It also lets me build filters to prevent loading pages from addresses or domains (with wildcards). For example, I blocked *.zergnet.com/* after getting tricked several times into following what...
  18. FS: "Lift" here Center of Gravity decals

    Parts For Sale
    Nice graphics, but there aren’t any lift points coincident with the center of gravity of the Elise or Exige. There are jacking points forward and aft of the CG, and one of them is close enough to the CG to raise both front and rear wheels with a jack because the chassis is so stiff. Jacking...
  19. 06 Exige not starting. Just clicks

    Lotus Exige
    @Craig Daniel - An easy way to tell what’s going on is to disconnect your battery and connect a known good battery. You can do this by disconnecting the ground wire on your Lotus battery, disconnecting the ground wire on your Mini’s battery, then connecting jumper cables from the Mini battery to...
  20. Odometer problem

    Lotus Elise
    “as the resale to TedR would now [be] affected.” There, fixed that for you. Everyone else knows that every sale by any entity - dealer or private party - includes an implied certification of the odometer or a statement regarding its accuracy. Most states have a place on the title for recording...
